Dedicate one's life to the church like Anna
Prophesy like Philip's daughters
Advocate for personal justice like Tamar
Save an entire family destiny like Rahab

Jesus released women from the captivity of a patriarchal world to be set free to lead, minister, teach and disciple. Women's primary identity is no longer "wife of a man, daughter of a father and mother of a son". Women's deepest identity is a disciple of Jesus. It is from this identity that all other relationships and vocations flow. This has set women free to be daughters, mothers, sisters, and wives as a beautiful expression of their calling as first and foremost people of God. This freedom and calling to be people of God releases women from the captivity of cultural patriarchy to be bound to the deep calling of ministers of the Holy God. Scripture as a whole gives support and examples of this transformational shift for women in the midst of a partiarchal culture and a legal system that denied women human rights.
